Friday is here, the weekend promises to be bright and lovely and I can't wait to get out on the Greenbelt down by the river and go for a little Autumn walk, and see what mother nature has in store.
Before I get into the announcements and event promotions, I would like to venture to the Discovery Center in Boise Idaho. This month a new exhibit began, Bodies Revealed, and this is just fascinating. Although I do not have tickets yet, I intend to go. The link will take you to The Plan Your Visit Page, with information on Tickets and the Discovery Center's address and hours of operation. The bodies are actual people, plasticized and preserved in an exhibit of how the body functions and what you look like on the inside. For $8.00 this is not to be missed.
